Looks almost as if everything is blocked except port 80. I'm on hughes.net satellite, and other hughes.net customers on the dslreports forum report the same or similar problems. OK, maybe it's a hughes.net problem, but when I mentioned it on the wxqc mailing list, another list member reported similar problems on another, DSL, service.
So, is something going on on the net at large? Ports being blocked? Or am I just paranoid?"
